Newly minted institution hoped to attract SME collaborators and rural students

Ireland’s latest technological university, the Atlantic Technological University, officially opened its doors on 4 April, bringing the number of technological universities in the country to four.

The new institution merges three former campuses—the Galway-Mayo, Letterkenny and Sligo Institutes of Technology—and was set up to assist regional development in the west and north-west of Ireland. The president of the university is Orla Flynn (pictured), outgoing president of Galway-Mayo IT, and its chair is Maura McNally, chair of the Bar Council of Ireland.
